French Week: What to Wear

Paris in summer, when it sizzles, and still looking cute? Here's my suggestion for an outfit that works in the City of Light or the Windy City:





















Dress - Like a light trench coat for the summer. $98 from Anthropologie.
Handbag - A $930 Yves Saint Laurent goatskin hobo bag that is so perfect and French. Le sigh.
Bracelet - A simple gold bangle inspired by a bronze age find displayed at the Musée d'Archéologie nationale : Château de Saint-Germain-en-Laye
Shoes - A pair of strappy sandals that look sky-high but actually come with a demure little heel. From Nine West for $78.
Sunglasses - A vintage pair from Forever 21.
Pluses - Red lipstick, a map of the Paris subway and a box of Laduree macaroons.

Love these outfit posts. Those sunglasses are fantastic.

Em, that dress is fantastic! The purse is swoon worthy too, but WAY out of my, currently very strict, budget!

Mine too! Hence the sighing :)
